The Shipping News (DVD) 26/11/2010

A Real Movie For Real Men

The Shipping News (DVD) This is my absolute favorite movie of all times! The cast is superb, with Cate Blanchett, Judy Dench, Julianne Moore and of course my favorite actor: Kevin Spacey. The setting of Newfoundland give the entire movie a sense of remoteness, but the kind of remoteness where individuals blossom through the co-operation and ties with others.

When I did so, it was mostly because I was planning to have my own book available via the Kindle store too, and so felt it necessary to own one myself. By now, a few months later, I'm absolutely thrilled with my Kindle. The ease of use is amazing, and reading from the screen Amazon had designed for it is no harder on the eye than reading from paper. But two things stand out above all else, and make having a Kindle a great addition to other ways of reading stuff. The first one is: my Kindle contains tens of books by now and carrying them around while travelling for work or pleasure is a breeze. The second: it's so fantastically easy to make highlights in a book, and then transfer those to my computer to play with as I need.
